Two projects transforming BART entrances along Market Street marked significant progress as May gave way to June.

The Escalator Replacement Project opened a completely rebuilt escalator at Embarcadero Station on May 31, 2024, c***ecting the platform to the concourse level near the Beale St. entrance. Crews are set to rebuild another platform escalator at the other end of the station next.

Meantime, two crews farther down Market Street are advancing as well. Workers rebuilding platform escalators at both Civic Center and Powell Street stations are approaching the finishing line.

Not to be outdone, the Canopy Project completed a new canopy above an entrance at Montgomery Street Station the evening before the escalator at Embarcadero was opened. The new canopy at the entrance near Sutter St. contributes to better security and will provide protection to a new escalator when the unit at that entrance is rebuilt.

Together, the Canopy and Escalator Rebuilding projects are improving the safety and cleanliness of entrances along Market St, BART’s most heavily used stations.

Free buses replace trains between 24th Street/Mission and Daly City stations today and tomorrow. This is happening to allow our crews to work in a safe and uninterrupted environment on an important trackway rebuilding project. Free buses will replace trains between those stations all weekend.

The work team will make the most of its time in the closed trackway. Crews will replace aging rail, install new traction power equipment, enhance tunnel lighting, and advance other improvements. Work will continue nonstop today and tomorrow.

Riders traveling between 24th Street and Daly City should expect delays of up to 30 minutes in the work area. Extra BART staff will be at all four impacted stations to help you get on the right bus to continue your trip. Green Line service will be cancelled. Also, there will be no Red Line service from Millbrae to Daly City. Yellow Line trains will serve that portion of the system with 20-minute headways all weekend.

Our work team this weekend will be busy revitalizing a portion of the San Francisco line. They’ll work around the clock between 24th Street Mission and Daly City stations. Free buses will replace trains between those stations Saturday and Sunday.

The work team will make the most of its time in the closed trackway. Crews will replace aging rail, install new traction power equipment, enhance tunnel lighting, and advance other improvements. Work will continue nonstop all weekend.

Riders traveling between 24th Street and Daly City should expect delays of up to 30 minutes in the work area.

05/23/2024

Today the BART Board appointed Melissa Hernandez to the seat representing District 5.

For the last eight years, Hernandez has served as a Dublin councilmember and is currently the city’s mayor. She has chaired three regional transit boards: the Livermore-Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA), Tri Valley/San Joaquin Valley Regional Transportation Authority (Valley Link) and the Finance committee of the Alameda County Transportation Commission.

“My vision is to keep public transportation working for everyone – and to keep BART reliable, affordable, and safe for everyone who rides,” said Hernandez, “By fostering dialogue with my colleagues, partnerships with state and Federal agencies and leaders, and championing equitable policies, I will strive to create a more inclusive and accessible transportation system that benefits everyone.”

“Melissa Hernandez is going to be able to walk into many of the rooms that we need to have leadership and representation, whether that’s in Sacramento or with the San Jose Extension,” said BART Board President Bevan Dufty. “Melissa has a tremendous set of experiences and is well known. Former Director John McPartland has been supportive of Melissa’s candidacy and that heartens me as well."

The BART Board of Directors is comprised of nine elected officials from the nine BART districts. The District 5 seat became vacant on March 28, 2024, when John McPartland announced his immediate resignation from the BART Board. McPartland cited family matters as his reason for needing to step down. His current term was through December 6, 2024.

Hernandez and two other individuals who submitted applications were interviewed by the Board at their May 9, 2024 regular meeting.

Hernandez will serve as the District 5 representative through the unexpired portion of the current term. If Hernandez wishes to continue serving on the Board of Directors after the current term expires, she will need to run for election to the seat in the general election to be held in November 2024.

We're already looking forward to next year's "Bike to Wherever Day" after a great turnout on Thursday. BART sponsors the annual celebration of cycling and hosted 24 “energizer stations” throughout the system. These pictures are from the Uptown BART Bike Station where BART staff handed out paper trains and BART Chapstick along with snacks for refueling.

Bike to Wherever Day began in 1994 as Bike to Work Day as a way to encourage people to ditch their cars and hop on their bikes. Things have changed since that first Bike to Work Day, and the annual event has transformed into a monthlong celebration of bicycling, called Bike to Wherever Days.

After 33 years as a Train Operator, Linda Yee-Sugaya, better known as Mama Linda, has seen a lot.
She’s watched the old trains become the new; stations being built, and BART lines lengthen; and she’s watched thousands upon thousands of faces stream past the windows of her train, on their way to parades and protests and celebrations. (Fact: Mama Linda’s operated trains during every single Giants Championship Parade this millennium.)

But there is one image, seen through the glare of her cab window many years ago, that she holds most dearly: Her father, Dock Ong Yee, waving at her train on the platform at Glen Park. 

“My father thought it was the greatest thing that I worked at BART. He would brag to all his friends, ‘My daughter drives the BART trains!’” she said. 
 
Mama Linda said her father taught her most of what she knows about “mama-ing.” He was a “paper son,” and immigrated to Akron, Ohio, with his sister in the 40s. In Akron, the Yees were one of six Asian families, and racism was a regular occurrence. Dock moved the kids to San Francisco in the 60s, when Mama Linda was 11. In San Francisco, she came to better understand her Chinese roots. 
 
Dock loved having his kids’ friends over, and he always insisted on feeding them. 
 
“Even my friends called my dad ‘Pops,’” Mama Linda said. “I took after him.” 
 
Now, Mama Linda makes sure her colleagues eat lunch before they head out on their routes. She brings food to the Daly City Yard breakroom – and often entire meals for her colleagues to cook together – pretty much every day. Just like her dad, she wants to make sure her friends are well fed.

In 16 years at BART, top engineering manager Ni Lee, PE, PMP has been promoted six times. At this rate, she’s averaging a promotion every 2.67 years. 

The secret to her success? 
 
“Much of what I know,” she said, “I learned as a food server.” 
 
Ni started working in food service when she was in middle school, serving donuts at a local shop. In the years that followed, she worked at a smattering of restaurants in both Taiwan, where she was born, and California. The list includes and to name a few. Her last job in the industry was working as a server at in Emeryville. 

Ni’s current role as Group Manager and Deputy Project Manager might seem far and away from her days working in restaurants, and in many ways it is. But Ni said much of what she knows about working and managing others crystallized while she was waiting tables and daydreaming about what her future might hold.

The secret to her success?

“Much of what I know,” she said, “I learned as a food server.”

Ni started working in food service when she was in middle school, serving donuts at a local shop. In the years that followed, she worked at a smattering of restaurants in both Taiwan, where she was born, and California. The list includes McDonald’s, Applebee’s, Chili’s, and Dennys, to name a few. Her last job in the industry was working as a server at California Pizza Kitchen in Emeryville.

Ni’s current role as Group Manager and Deputy Project Manager might seem far and away from her days working in restaurants, and in many ways it is. But Ni said much of what she knows about working and managing others crystallized while she was waiting tables and daydreaming about what her future might hold.

In the article, Ni talks about her serving days, growing up between Taiwan and California, as well as a robot she and her UC Berkeley classmates built that was intended “to help socially awkward engineers make friends.” She also shares her recipe for hot pot dipping sauce.
